Clinical fellows are medical practitioners who pursue advanced training in a specific medical specialism. The clinical fellows in our proton beam therapy centre have a passion for oncology, particularly radiotherapy as a cancer treatment.
Clinical fellows play a vital role in a patient’s journey through proton beam therapy. Their role involves (but is not limited to) meeting patients for the first time at their initial assessment visit, assisting in marking up the treatment area and problem solving or reviewing patients if side effects arise.
Clinical fellows face a steep learning curve during their time in proton beam therapy but get the valued opportunity to learn first-hand from our expert clinicians within the centre. They are at the forefront of research within the department and their pioneering work continuously benefits our patients.
